Mesh grille ??????

Does anyone have this grille? Pics, comments, pro's/cons? So those clips are what you use to attach it??... Do they come out through the front surface of the mesh grille, or do they somehow hook to attachment points on the inside (back side) of the grille??....

Thanks

Just use gutter guard if you are going to go with the honeycomb. It is cheaper and won't have any chrome chip off from a rock on the freeway.

My post wasn't meant to have any undertones. He is on the CT board and knows that they can probably answer that specific question best over there. In the thread on CT I was referring to, there were people that would rather not have anything to do with TTORA/this message board (fine with me), and there were others that seemed like they wanted to stick around this message board only to cause more friction between the two forums, but in a more subtle manner (similiar to asking about bling bling mods that most people here do not care about).

Hell, I like the billit look, but I'd end up ruining something that cost way too much for my truck. What I did end up doing was put gutter guard up behind my grill for added protection though, and people have complimented me on the look.



CT has some great technical information and the owners have some very nice looking rigs and put a lot of time and money in their trucks, like we do ours. The biggest difference is that the people over here look more for functionality, not show. If you are looking for information on something for show, you will probably get better info over at CT.

now thats a great response ... i see what you're saying

by the way ... that grill does look a lot better than stock ... just gutter guard you say ... i may have to look into that, thats a pretty good cheap trick.

Thanks.

The gutter guard was like $3-$5 at Home Depot. Use black zip ties and you are golden.

I am on both boards and you are right....Depending on what type of info you are looking for is where you should appropriately post your thread. This original poster does tend to post ALOT of threads about cosmetic things....he even uses my photos from my webshots site to put as examples of which direction he wants to go and hosts them on his cardomain site. Does it bother me? No...I just don't let it bother me because what he wants to do with his rig I could care less. It's up to me whether I want to read, and then respond willingly with advise, or to just ignore it.

I go on both boards to learn, as well as, show my enthusiam of the mods or trips I've gone. .....

When I read responses like this it's just funny to me, but wanted to respond as OppositeBoy has some great points on the bottom of his response.

I actually post at about 4 tacoma forums asking and sharing the same info on each one...this way I have more ppl are involved in things i am interested in. I do very little offroading because i dont have a supsension bought and put on yet? This summer, i am concentrating on looks of exterior and redoing my interior. Next year I will be spending time of lifting my rig. I could care less about the wars/flaming going on inbetween TTORA and CT (it's not my wasted time). I'm just another forum user asking and sharing info.

Just an FYI -

Stock rigs are very capable off the pavement. Most people just don't believe it until they see it, or don't have the cojones to try it. I saw it done, and then decided I could push my rig when it was stock.

Walker's rig didn't work? Fawk. Well, that was choice #2. I couldn't find pics of my 1st choice (the one that had eeach 4 corners controlled sepreately with hydrolics). But I don't know if you could actually consider that rig as IFS/IRS

i'm well aware of the benifits of a solid axel over an ifs
and for most peoples offroading purpose sas makes sense

i'm saying that i'm not going to get rid of my ifs, because it doesn't make sense for my situation.

form follows function ... number one design principle
